changing sprokets and chain 90's zx10r?

hello MT I am new to all this motorcycle mechanics but I know my way around cars pretty well, in other words im good with tools lol

I want to change out my sprockets and chain on my
1990 Kawasaki ninja zx10r! just got this and rear sprocket is worn out pretty bad so I decided to change everything I can while I take it apart.

does anyone here care to walk me through this process? ;/ or at least direct me to a link on how to do so?
I searched all over but only new bikes come up :/

things I really want to know: do I need any special tools for this process?

need a way to lift bike of ground to remove rear wheel. a stand, lift or car jack.chain breaking tool or grinder to cut chain. assortment. of metric tools. and a large socket for front sprocket. may need impact to brake loose front sprocket retention nut. or a large breaker bar. then you will need a chain tool to reinstall new master link unless u buy a clip on style master link.....

Lol, the chain tool is important. I once tried to crimp on the master link in a chain with two pairs of vise grip pliers (using one on each side of the link) and the chain shot off at 65 MPH on 610 in front of the astrodome.

At least you broke it loose while the chain and whee were still on. You pretty much need an impact if the wheel is off

Yeah Ive got your response. You traded me a jacked up civic and never registered the bike in your name, you dont know about bikes, and then proceeded to get a ticket in under a week in my name because of your stupidity. How I know its my bike? You still have the thread up about selling your B20 honda civic.
